exciting the admiration of your peers as well as the
common people. You resolutely hunted the eluding deer, ufe.,
hostile kings; and having destroyed several proud people, you
restored the property of Siiranganatha. You captured Nagur
and distributed new pearls to the complete satisfaction of all
people who asked for them. You stormed the fort of Bonagiri
BO as to increase your fame, and exacted tribute from all the
chiefs of Tannarasunad within a very short time. Having
given succour to the king of the Pandyas who sought your
protection, you established him firmly in his kingdom. You
crushed by means of your vanguard the pride of the powerful
Bettu Perumal; and having defeated the five Tirupatis (Tiru-
vadis), you put them to flight. You restored Tirupati (Tiruvadi)
who craved your protection to his former kingdom, and having
crossed the fort which goes by the name of Tovalaghat, you
approached the Grod Anantagayana and offered him worship
and set up permanently at Kanyakumarl a shining pillar of
victory to commemorate your conquest of southern quarter.

drops of the blood of your multitudinous enemies in the waters
of the Southern Sea.
